It is a shortened work week! Jon and I both have today off. We were planning on having a picnic lunch with the kids but the weather has other plans. Ah well, if you have three kids flexibility is a must! I'm not sure what plan B is, but we will thing of something.
I love my meal plan. It makes life so much easier. I don't sit and wonder each day what to make for dinner or hope I have the ingredients I need for dinner that night. we do drift from the plan sometimes (like last night) but that is where my stockpile comes in. However, I do know that my meal plan helps to keep me on a budget for the groceries and it keeps me from going back to the store several times a week!
We did a good job with sticking to our meal plans up until last night. It was too hot for me to deal with cooking so we had an extra night of hot dogs and hamburgers. We ate outside on the deck, enjoyed the beautiful weather and no one complained!
Here is this week's plan:
Monday- chicken and vegetable nachos
Tuesday- Pizza dinner at my parents. We are celebrating my grandmother's 81st birthday. I am in charge of dessert and I am making a cheesecake with a graham cracker crust.
Wednesday- leftovers. I work until 5 and we have Madeline's kindergarten open house (my baby girl is going to kindergarten in the fall!) so it needs to be quick and easy!
Thursday- honey lime chicken and green beans
Friday- hot dogs and hamburgers with corn on the cob
Saturday- breakfast for dinner with fruit cocktail
Sunday- pasta and meatballs with mixed vegetables
